Maiden ride done, thoroughly enjoyed it, went round my local streets, then took some minor roads to get me close enough to fuel up, without having to have much travelling on the A18, but it was fine managed the major roundabouts without issue, filled up with pay at the pump, to save messing with helmet, went on my again, back down the same way, but pulled into an industrial estate, place was empty, big car parks, so was able to practice figure of eights, U-turns, plenty of slow riding and clutch control, the bike itself is a very comfortable ride, suspension is great, handles bumps effortlessly, was able to go through all the gears, the braking is much better than on the YBR that i did my CBT on, probably because it is dual braking, next run out will be longer and will be going further afield with some long roads and just cruise :cheers:
